Black Lives Matter just caused one terrible thing to happen to America
Black Lives Matter is the most popular political movement in America right now.
Politicians live in fear of criticizing them.
But Black Lives Matter just caused one terrible thing to happen to America.
Florida is a new coronavirus hotspot.
The epicenter in Florida is Miami-Dade country.
On Sunday, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez appeared on CBS’ Face the Nation to discuss how his city is managing the outbreak.
In a surprise to viewers, Mayor Gimenez blamed Black Lives Matter protests for the spike in cases.
“I think obviously the protests had a lot to do with it,” Gimenez told host Margaret Brennan. “We had, you know, thousands of young people together outside, a lot of them not wearing masks. And we know when you do that, and you are talking, and you are chanting, etc., that really spreads the virus.”
“So absolutely, the protests had something to do with it,” the mayor added. “But also our people, our residents, did not — I think they let their guard down and started to socialize. And again, that also has to do with it. So it’s all the above. I’m not saying it’s just that, but it was a contributing factor.”
After the riots and protests where hundreds of thousands of Black Lives Matter took to the streets Democrats and their allies in the Fake News Media tried to downplay the risks of these mass gatherings as “super spreader” events.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio even banned contact tracers from asking people if they attended a Black Lives Matter demonstration.
States across the Sunbelt are seeing a surge in coronavirus cases.
Democrats and the Fake News Media want to blame it on Donald Trump pushing states to reopen “too soon.”
But one of the mayors of the most affected areas points the blame at Black Lives Matter.
